The captain of the Indian Women’s Hockey team Rani Rampal was awarded one of India’s highest civilian honours, the Padma Shri award. The award was conferred by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind, for leading the team to a fourth-place finish at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Even though the women’s hockey team was unable to win a medal, they did the country proud as they fought right to the very end and showed the world that they too can compete with the best.
